Teaching Artist Statement
Each student is unique and needs to be nurtured in a way that best strengthens the teacher/student relationship. I give my all at every lesson and expect the same of my students. We work hard and play even harder, laughing throughout our lessons, yet learning the entire way! Singing is more than just the sound that comes out of our vocal folds, but more the stories that we tell through song. I am there to support that emotional exploration and character development as well as teach a healthy vocal technique.
Vocal pedagogue Kristy Errera-Solomon has taught opera, theater, Jazz, and Rock students, as well as rooms-full of cooing babies.
